Taoism funerals

Taoist funeral practices are complex but can also be simple.. This depends on the preferences of the bereaved family. Every ritual and rite holds a specific meaning. Rituals and Procedures of a Taoist funeral vary among the different dialect groups, such as Teochew, Hokkien, Hakka, Cantonese, and Hainanese.
Despite the variation of rituals and procedures done for each different dialect group, the common principles are to remind the living of the values of filial piety and to help the deceased to repent sins they committed in their life. This is to help the deceased soul to have a smoother journey into the next life.

Rituals and procedures vary, but common processes are held. To gather merits for the dearly departed, separate the dead from the living, gain protection and blessings for the family, make sure the dearly departed’s body is protected from monsters and demons and repent and to be forgiven of their sins by the deities to have a smooth journey to Heaven or reincarnate into a human depending on their deeds in their life.
